Takaratomy Micropets-I Robots Will Kill You With Cuteness
September 4th, 2009
Cuter than a bowl of kittens covered in marshmallows and sprinkles, these little electronic playthings are enough to make me want to puke a rainbow.
Each of TakaraTomy’s Micropets-i miniature desktop robo-playthings has a tiny little mind of its own.
The little animals can chase after a tiny ball or your hand, stroll around any flat surface and avoid obstacles, sing tunes, and even participate in duets when you get two of them together.
And with names like Custard, Mocha and Pudding, how can you resist these little guys? You’ll want to grab the entire menagerie and let them run amok in your cubicle.
Even if you don’t live in Japan, that’s okay, because the fine folks over at Brando are happy to sell you some Micropets-i critters for $20 (USD) a piece.
